Lots of you asked me what brand of metallic pen I used on THESE CARDS. Here are the brands I've used with success.
That's PrismaColor Premier, Sakura Pen-touch, Pilot, and Marvy Uchida.
I don't have a preference...all four have worked for me nicely. Each pen has a sturdy barrel with a metal ball in it. Each pen needs to be primed the first time you use it...the tip will be white, and you must shake the pen vigorously, then depress the tip on a thick scrap of paper repeatedly until the ink runs smoothly and all the white is replaced with the ink color.
Whenever the pen starts to skip, just shake vigorously and prime it again on a scrap. If you don't move your ruler, you can repeat the line and correct any skipping with a second or third pass.
By the way, I mistook the copper Marvy Uchida pen for bronze when I typed my last post. It's definitely copper.
And on a completely unrelated subject, I bought a new door mat for my front door that might give a few of you long-time readers a chuckle.
Yes, it's a pear. For wiping one's feet.
The dog won't walk on it. She's afraid.
I'm not. I just laugh at it.
Because I'm weird that way.
For those of you who are lost and not getting the joke, please read this post. You'll never look at pears the same way again.
And here's bling on a Christmas card. Lots of bling.
This card uses beautiful, shimmery Brilliance inks and a bunch of bling in multiple sizes.
Because you can never have too much bling.
But more than one pear at a time...let's just not go there.
